Today started off slow and lazy. I love days like this! So, since the day is mine to do with as I wish, I decided to finish up a little of the "decorating" in my scraproom. My son put up some shelves and a photo collage frame for me last night so I wanted to get it all set up. I played around with Photoshop Elements printing out photos for the collage frame. The first photo I printed didn't look quite right. Well, what do you know...I'm out of ink..AGAIN! So off to Office Depot to purchase the cartridges I needed, then back home. After getting the printer all set up with new ink cartridges, I finished up the pics for the new frame, and moved on over to my scrapping table.
During a conversation with my oldest daughter last night, she informed me that I scrap more photos of all the other grandchildren more than I do of her son, Jacob...DUH! It's very difficult to keep up with who get scrapped the most when you have 16 grandchildren to scrap for!!! LOL! Anywho...she's right (sort of), it's been a while since I've scrapped a picture of Jacob, so I printed these cool photos of him that I took last fall (worked much better with ink in the printer!)and got busy scrapping! Here's the layout...and I must say, I like the finished product!
I used Basic Grey Cappella papers for this layout. I matted the larger photo with brown then a larger black piece. I tore to bottom of the black piece and the brown piece I matted the smaller photo with. The chipboard stars were bare chipboard that I painted green, then coated them with glitter glam. Once that dried, I smudged all chipboard with a little walnut ink stain. On the smaller photo, I added a bit of twine and tied a button on top. I added a couple of little metal embellies (because I was challenged to do so by a group of friends).
That's about it for now. Thanks so much for stopping by...Until next time...
